6 Pablo Matera:

Made plenty of hard metres, sometimes just one or two at a time, but kept the momentum going forward.

5 Matias Alemanno:

The hard work in the close exchanges – especially on defence – was his most valuable asset.

Drifted in and out of the game and had the occasional moment of impact.

3 Ramiro Herrera:

Had a shocker and did not complete a single tackle.

3/10
